In a child's eye there's something I hope someday you'll know
A friend's dedication, it's something to behold
A mother's smile, it makes everything alright
To a women's caring hand I'll be holding on tonight

[Chorus:]
When you got love and we got family [x2]
Keep 'em close and don't forget
To hold them right there in your heart
When you got love and family

(Whoa!, Whoa!)
(I'll remember you today)

To my father's stern direction
And the lessons that he taught
My grandmother's affection
And the faith I always fought
To the kids at the shows
The way you sing it back at us
And the boys down the park
When we were young and live was nuts

[Chorus:]
When you got love and we got family [x2]
Keep 'em close and don't forget
To hold them right there in your heart
When you got love and family

(Whoa!, Whoa!)
(I'll remember you today)

To all the single parents
Who keep holding down the fort
To all you sons & daughters
Be thankful for what you've got
To everyone with no one
May good fortune turn your way
To everyone whose had someone
Remember them today

[Chorus:]
When you got love and we got family [x2]
Keep 'em close and don't forget
To hold them right there in your heart
When you got love and family
